where we were all on this trip in florida reading all the analysis and it all said this is terrible. horrendous and all these things and we were thinking, well we tested it and people really like speech. they like what he had to say and that ended up the road map for us moving forward. >> i don't think the wrong women materialized among the larger electorate in this sort of small day-to-day combat we had on cable news and on blogs and twitter. i think we had a difficult marriage gap that effected our ability to win but if you look at the exit poling and the winning on the economy and having at least an imaginable gender gap that was something that really did was catnip for t.v. bookers and made for sort of the outrage index that often times comes with the dialogue in campaigns. it said that but i don't think materialized as a big of a difference in the campaign. >> i talked to someone in the romney operation that said when we were talking of the polls and evaluation and why they were shocked that it was not a lot closer they said we never ran the models of what i would be like if th

we think we will be officially the winner in florida. as of right now, total turnout and number of voters has increased in colorado, iowa, minnesota, nevada, north carolina, and wisconsin. it looks like it decreased in 35 of 49 battleground states. the total turnout may be higher in 2008 when all the votes are finally counted. as we planned for, total minority vote share increased to 28%. our coalition turnout, women made up about the same percent of the electorate as in 2008. we got 65% of women voters. for lots of reporting about youth turnout, they continue to turn out and take control of their future. in virginia, we increased our youth percentage. in florida, voting rates increased to 16%, and we got 61% in 2008 and 66% in 2012. african american turnout and support was as high or higher than ever. in ohio, african-americans increased from 11% to 15%. we got somewhere between 9% and 97% in every battleground state. 71% of latino vote, the highest percentage of latino vote since 1996. in florida increase from 14% in 2008 to 17% in 2012. we increased our vote share in florida

: you covered jeb bush in florida. >> he has been a leading mathematician. he said the republican party needs to embrace immigration reform, not just for political reasons but for economic reasons. there is common ground when it comes to immigration on the one aspect of immigration reform that deals with high skilled workers. we need to make sure the brightest who come here to get educated are staying here. because of the other issues involving immigration, border security, folks not highly skilled, that muddies the water. perhaps this election will be the frying pan on the head of the republican party. >> there was talk about romney's change in tone. talk about this message versus substance debate they will probably have to have. should they just be nicer to hispanics? >> the public is more informed than it ever has been because of the internet. we are not getting the job done here in washington. the same is true for the democrats. i was struck by the president's speech. he's never followed up on the 2008 speech. he was not able to fill those lofty promises. he was very powerful. humil

phillip elliott, national politics reporter. he is on the road in florida where senator mark a rubio is speaking at a fund-raiser. why is senator rubio at this event? >> normally, they're saying that he is here because he is invited. but this is the first step of getting people in iowa to see if they might consider rubio running for president. he was considering being a candidate in 2012. he was considered for the vice presidency. now he is looking at 2016, believe it or not. this is a republican party right now that does not have a standard bearer. he certainly will be able to shape the direction of the party and coming to iowa this early really lays down a marker as to what condition -- a position he has for a national role in the party. >> the sea have a relationship with the governor of iowa? -- does he have a relationship with the governor of iowa? >> he really is his own franchise here. he is a larger than life figure, very colorful. everyone who has any sort of presidential ambition develops a relationship with him, which is not difficult, i should add. he really is almost lik
